When it comes to wedding guest etiquette, there are a few basic regulations. You probably should not skip your friend’s right to party it up at the reception or ignore a bride and groom’s request to go away the kids at home, as an instance. The modern case of wedding-visitor shaming to head viral but has left the Internet divided. According to Fox News, the bride’s old roomie is taking a few heats in the Facebook group “That’s It I’m Wedding Shaming” to do her personal vegan meal prep.

The guest in the query was the bride’s college roommate, who introduced her vegan meal to the reception. Though the poster claimed to be “cool” with veganism and the visitor’s choice to save money on pricier, meat-based meals options totally at the bachelorette birthday celebration, practice session dinner, and reception, she reputedly took problem with the female’s ever-present Tupperware and planned-out dishes. “This chick brought about troubles the whole weekend,” she wrote. “The complete weekend she moped around within the kitchen cooking her vegan food, in prep for something our subsequent meal turned into that she wouldn’t be taking part in and meals shaming us the entire time. She shamed us for pepperoni pizza (I agree with the words slaughter and murderers have been used).”

She went directly to explain how the Tupperware even came out in public, despite the reality that the group had referred to as the locale beforehand of time to make sure it’d offer vegan alternatives. “We went to a pleasing eating place Saturday night, with lots of vegan alternatives (we checked the menu for her ahead of time), but she insisted on lugging a HUGE Tupperware field of her unique meals out,” the poster complained. “This lady sat after me at a five-celebrity vicinity choosing some bites round from a five-gallon field.”

The guest seemingly took matters one step further afterward, toting the container with her as they partied. “Then we went out after, and we all had small crossbody bags, and she carried around this large Tupperware field at the membership all night due to the fact she didn’t need to simply toss it and spend the money on a new one,” the commenter wrote. The vegan also introduced her very own food to the reception: “She delivered meals [to the wedding] still knowing there could be a special meal for her.” Ultimately, the Facebook poster said the female’s nutritional alternatives affected her personal enjoyment. “Basically, the complete weekend revolved around her being vegan and rude about it, and he or she drove us crazy,” she wrote.

Reactions to the post have been predictably combined, with many protecting the visitor’s decision to do her very own component food-smart and others agreeing that she had taken matters too far. “This is so more,” one wrote. “As a vegan, I can optimistically say that bringing a protein bar and ordering an undeniable salad is much higher than 5g Tupperware.” Wrote another: “Honestly, I wish I added meals for the weddings I’ve been to. The vegan alternatives were SAD and barely enough to feed a little one. And I wouldn’t need to pay for food that I wasn’t consuming either.”
